The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.409 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 14%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

All forms of advertising are banned, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, the well-off are enjoying tax cuts while famine kills off the poor and destitute, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the soul.

Vyolynce is ranked 1st in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 1,086th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 2,345.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
